I'm still not on board the sour bandwagon. These beers don't look or smell great, and to me, the sour flavor is tolerable, if not enjoyable. Four Play is a solid sour though, and perhaps you should modify my rating if you're a true sour lover. The tart cherry is present, but not overwhelming, and the sour bite is subdued, to me a sign of thoughtful blending. Certainly worthy of a taste if you are exploring the style.

draft at upright. hazy off red color. smell of lacto, brett and a good amount of funky cherries. taste is slightly sour and blended perfectly. finish lasts and leaves you craving more. awesome
